The most awaited IPL tournament is all set to get inaugurated in less than 20 days amidst the COVID 19 crisis. Almost all the players of every team have reached UAE and are self quarantined to participate in the tournament. As all the preparations are being made in full swing by the management, Twitter banter between IPL teams also started taking place to keep the fans engaged.
The defending champions Mumbai Indians, on 2nd September uploaded a video in their official twitter account, highlighting the special moments of their team from last year IPL season. The video showed the perfect yorkers of Malinga, Rohit Sharma’s effortless batting ability and also their fielding excellence. The song they used for the video compilation is A.R Rahman’s recent chartbuster “Verithanam, Verithanam” from Tamil movie “Bigil” directed by Atlee. The song was sung by our very own “Thalapathy” and Tamil based twitter users surprised on seeing a MI using the song for one of their videos.
